Burton on Trent War Memorial and Garden
Burton on Trent war memorial stands in a garden on Lichfield Street. A 2 metre high bronze winged Victory figure balancing on top of a bronze globe, raising a downward-pointing sword in its right hand and holding a laurel wreath in its left stands on top of the monument. Below her the ornate Classical Portland stone square-sectioned pedestal carries two bronze plaques upon which inscriptions and names are carved. Alongside the plaques are two further sculptured figures, one of St George and the other of Peace which holds a dove in its hand.

The memorial is Grade II* listed (Historic England List entry Number: 1288788 LinkExternal link )
